Reports of a possibly drunken driver on River Road near Guerneville late Wednesday led to the arrest of a Sebastopol man currently being prosecuted for a drunken driving arrest in May that caused him serious injuries, according to the CHP.
On May 21, a suspected drunken Ryan Schroeder, 39, crashed his motorcycle while on Highway 116 in Guerneville and was flown to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, CHP Officer Jon Sloat said. Officers arrested him that night and his license was suspended.
Just over two months later, someone called 911 at 10:30 p.m. to report a Dodge Durango whose driver could be intoxicated. Minutes later a sheriff’s deputy who’d heard the “be on the lookout” alert spotted the vehicle near Bonita Road and called for a CHP officer, Sloat said.
Schroeder, the driver, failed sobriety tests and was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor drunken driving.
His driving record also showed he’d been convicted of drunken driving following a 2010 arrest, Sloat said.
Schroeder was released from the Sonoma County Jail early Thursday afternoon on a citation.
